Car accident in Rhode Island results in serious injury

In the aftermath of a motor vehicle collision in Rhode Island, a special investigation team may be called in to recreate the accident in order to help determine an exact cause. This is often the case if crash details are unclear. If a car accident is deemed to be the result of motorist negligence, a civil lawsuit may be filed above and beyond any criminal charges a negligent or reckless driver may face.

Responding legally to a car accident in Rhode Island

When a fender-bender occurs on a Rhode Island roadway, it often amounts to a mere inconvenience and a brief exchange of personal and insurance information. Most of the time, those involved part ways and go about business as usual. If no one is injured and property damage is limited to a mere cosmetic scratch or two, it is possible that nothing more will come of the situation. However, when a car accident results in substantial property damage or personal injury, a person may choose to respond legally by filing a claim against any party deemed responsible.
